Cernd is detained in a prison located in the town of Trademeet. He needs the player character's assistance in investigating attacks upon the town. Cernd has an even, calm disposition and a habit of overusing nature-related metaphors. Cernd's lycanthropy allows him to take the form of a werewolf. Cernd was once a city dweller, resulting in some loose ends from his former life resurfacing, as he sets foot in Athkatla.
